In kindergarten, my son held a competition for the best bird feeder. Quickly jotted down a few sketches, took to the machine and created this instance. The frame is made of pine and plywood, gables, roof ridge – Pine. Molded on the roof – made โ€‹โ€‹of plywood. Finials and balls – from some redwood. All construction contracted with the hook pin, threaded through the center trough and tightened the nut.
Dimensions: base – a square with sides 30 cm, height approximately 30 cm
As a result, feeding ranked third in the citywide competition.

Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.
Why do you think they call it the ’left coast’?

You’re kidding, right?
If this was third place, what in the world was first?

At the competition, the award was a lot of bird feeders, but which of them won the first place – was not specified.

Love it. Here’s some trivia. This appears to be Thai inspired. If so, then the finials on the roof tips are called Chao Fa.
